After a number of delays, the first batch of the Raspberry Pi has reached its distributors and the tiny computer board should begin shipping to customers very soon — in fact, in some cases it looks like buyers have already received theirs. The current shipments are being sent out to those who were quick enough to grab one of the first batch before it sold out, and distributor RS Components says that it's working closely with the manufacturer to bring additional shipments in stock to help clear out the order backlog. The launch of the Pi — a $35, credit card-sized, Linux-based computer — has been delayed a few times, due both to manufacturing problems and issues with compliance testing. If you still want to pick one up, the tiny machines can be ordered from both RS Components and Allied Electronics.
